Just thought I'd share a few from my Christmas paintings (a little early I know...I hope I don't ruin any surprises!) They're all 11x14" watercolors.

Dot the Catahoula:


Troop the Boxer:


Little Buddy the Tabby:


There are a ton more, but these are my most recent favorites.  I enjoy doing the ones with more texture and fur patterning and think I'm better at it than the smooth/solid colored ones.  They're all from photos btw, I don't have an eidetic memory Wink

Oh, and an older one for the road...this is my baby Gizmo:

Great work, very realistic. I especially like the depth in the eyes of the first one.

What remarkable work you do.  You seemed to have even captured their personalities in each piece as well.
